Tombstone Tuesday: Vivian Evelyn (Boe) Schaefering

My great-grandmother Kathleen Graham's oldest child, Vivian Evelyn, was born on 9 August 1901 in Alton, Madison County, Illinois. Vivian's biological father was Samuel R. Bowen. She was known as Vivian Walker until her mother married John Boe;  Vivian then took his surname and was raised as his daughter. Vivian married Erwin Edgar Schaefering on 7 February 1922 in Obion County, Tennessee. Vivian died on 12 December 1978 in St. Louis, Missouri. Her ashes are interred at Hillcrest Abbey Crematory and Mausoleum in St. Louis.
